Inspired by the silver bullion craze, the US Mint decided to produce a silver bullion coin in BU and Proof condition every year for their avid coin collectors and investors. In 1986, the first Proof American Silver Eagle was made, taking a step up from the Eisenhower dollar of the 70's. Although the obverse design never changes, the desire to own these prized beauties has only grown throughout the US and the world. The Proof Silver Eagles are known for their outstanding mint packaging, competitively low mintages, and the flawless proof finish that costs a pretty penny. The popularity for these coins has only grown through the years, even attracting newcomers.
Your 1993 Proof Silver Eagle naturally shimmers with the "newly minted" crisp finish of a proof coin. Your one ounce of pure .999 silver is packaged in original mint packaging containing its COA. The "P" mint-mark is representative of the Philadelphia Mint, where the proof coins were minted between 1993-2000. A Grecian goddess is pictured on the obverse of the American Silver Eagle. This design of Lady Liberty originated from the most popular Walking Liberty half dollar design. Adolph A. Weinman is the sculptor responsible for this magnificent design and the design of many other famous works, such as the Mercury dime. On the Silver Eagle, Lady Liberty is a tall and slender figure, who walks with elegance and power. Her presence alone demands respect for the many sacrifices given so that the United States of America can maintain that liberty and freedom. The rising sun encroaches behind her, to offer the hope of a new day. The coin's year of mintage is also written beneath her gentle footsteps. The reverse displays the national seal; a large eagle being protected by a sturdy shield. The reverse also bears the coin's purity and weight for authentication purposes.
